On Key Up: A Game for Keyboards

Released: March 2022

Available on: Steam

Get to know your keyboard with this unique, physics-based puzzle game! Bounce, roll, paint, and even break objects with each press of a key.

On Key Up was the first Unity project that I started. The idea came from just going through some of the basic Unity tutorials that involved working with simple shapes. I wanted to maintain that same simplicity while experimenting with different aspects of Unity like making a laser reflect off of other objects and attaching objects together via a joint or chain.

Of course, there are limitations to the shapes that Unity provides, and I had to make a few of my own custom shapes (like a bowl and ring). I used a program called Wings3D for this. I'd played around with Wings3D years ago as a young college student, so it was fun to revisit this program and actually use it for a game!
